    So many things you can do with these jars....the first thought though, is to use them to hold a gift....homemade bath salts, candies, loose-leaf tea, flowers, homemade cocoa mix...Decorate in any way or just be simple and tie a few strands of raffia around the top.

    Wow! You are lucky to have all of these! My immediate thought would be to use them to make solar lights for the garden. Otherwise glue some gems on them using silicone and also enjoy them in the garden - there are lots of posts on Hometalk on both these ideas. Another idea - make some homemade jam or cookies and give them away as gifts.

    my first thought was to clean them up make an awesome shelf just for them out of pallet wood and fill them with fresh dried herbs from the garden or baking stuff maybe candies? there must be a million things you could do?

    Fill with different color dried beans, in layers. You can even use spices in different colors. Place a section of a toilet paper roll, tape off top and bottom, and insert in the center of the jar to take up space so you use less decorative items. look around to see what you have...beads, glass drops or maybe even buttons, the items are limitless.

    I have seen these painted to look like jadeite and they were beautiful. I have the post clipped on my Cheap Repurposed Decor board.

    They would be really nice jars to make preserves or jellies as special gifts for people as well. Make a personalized label on them for added charm. They would of course be excellent for candles, candies, or anything else that would fit in them. They are cute.

    Paint them and us as candles in window sill. Looks great. Make little mini terrariums. Use in bathroom for different epsom salts. Use in kitchen for bulk food or spices. Use in craft area for craft supplies. Use for different pet supplies like treats. Too numerous to say

    They are perfect for displaying either craft supplies like buttons, beads, silk flower blossoms, embroidery thread, etc. Or do you collect pretty seashells, smooth rocks, sea glass, marbles, etc.

    I just bought 12 similar jars. Mine are square and I bought the IKEA metal basket and rod and hangers to hang them on the wall above the countertops. Herbs and herb gifts is what I will use mine for. I just LOVE them!!!

    I'm unable to see how big these jars are, however I found some like those and now use them as jars for spices. I picked up some blackboard stickers and used a white paint pen to write the spice names and then put the stickers on the jars. Hopefully, these have rubber seals so that the spices stay fresh. I liked mine so much that I got on EBay and found more!

    Make gifts of peppermint oil,coconut oil, and sugar hand scrub. Pour mixture in the jars. Recipe found on my Pinterest Board. Tie a thin ribbon and bow around them. Add a seasonal pick and tiny plastic or wooden spoon/spatula found at craft stores and you have a beautiful gift! Huge success!

    If you work with rhinestones and have need to buy in bulk, these little jars would be great to store your different sizes and colors in. I actually bought a large spice rack and store mine in the clear jars. Works great for organizing!
